RoleModel Celebrates 25 Years in Business

We’re thrilled to announce that we just reached our 25th year as a company! To celebrate, we gathered past and present RoleModel employees and their families to celebrate all God has done over the last 25 years we have been in business. We had a wonderful time of fellowship with one another—during that time, we got the opportunity to interview former employees about their time at RoleModel. Listen below to hear about their experiences, how they were set up for success in the technical industry, and how working at RoleModel continued to impact their life.

Watch now:

“I know what RoleModel software is going to be. We’re going to be the first extreme programming software studio.”- Ken Auer

Ken Auer had an idea 25 years ago. Fast forward to today, RoleModel Software has over thirty team members, has worked on hundreds of successful projects, and kept their goal of serving their customers and delivering sustainable software.

“They’re good at what they do; they make good software”- Duff O’Melia

Our continued success is due in no small part to our collaborative approach to developing software. RoleModel partners with your company to learn your business inside and out. This deep understanding of your mission and values helps us craft software that will enhance your business, letting you focus on serving your customers. 

One way RoleModel embodies the idea of collaboration is that each project is led by a Craftsman—a software expert, leader, and business consultant, all rolled into one. Throughout the development process, our Craftsmen stay in close communication with our partners through standups, meetings, and check-ins where you will be able to see your new working software with new changes almost daily. 

But RoleModel is more than high-quality software: RoleModel has a mission of serving the community and providing an edifying work environment for its employees. 

“It’s been wonderful to see him form the company, to see in many ways how his belief system and what he cares for and the people around him, how he’s been able to encapsulate that in an organization. That is, being able to replicate those values into the community and into the technical community as well.” - Reed Philips

One way that we build community is through our three core values: character, collaboration, and craftsmanship.

  • Character: We seek to model the perfect model of character—Jesus Christ. (Philippians 2)
  • Collaboration: We deliver superior results as a highly collaborative team. We cultivate personal and professional growth by working together. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
  • Craftsmanship: We build exceptional products tailored to our client's needs. (Proverbs 22:29)

Our mission is to glorify God through our work and our interactions with our colleagues. We do this by living out our core values in our work every day. Adam Williams sums it up best:

“As the scriptures say, ‘you see someone who is good in their work, they will stand before kings.’ I really believe that, and I learned that through this relationship with RoleModel Software and with Ken.” - Adam Williams

To all our clients, employees, and partners, thank you for an amazing 25 years! We’re looking forward to the next 25 years!
